    Read where? Edit in what way? I've never had problems like this except on mtbr.

    I know. Me either. When my pictures post upside down in mtbr I open them in the iPhoto application editing mode, save them and repost. I don't actually make any changes to the picture. I don't know why it works, but (so far) it does.

    I love my fat bike for everything!
    This is a bike check of my 2018 Norco Bigfoot 1. Let me know what you think of the bike and the video.

    Salsa Beargrease X5. Have a Spring, Summer, and Autumn under my belt with this thing. It has by far been the most fun bike I have ever owned and probably my most ridden in my stable. I am convinced that I can sell my other mountain bikes and use this for everything now.

    I couldn't agree more. Since buying my fat bike, all desire for other bikes has diminished to practically non-existence.

    Yup, I am also in this boat. I have a dedicated 29er HT, but I'll either sell it or give it to my sister if she wants to get into MTB. I have one fattie rn, but I would love to get a Farley 7 and a Surly ICT. The fat bike kool-aid just gets stronger every time I ride. Sure, more leg power, who cares? I am stronger now riding it :cool::thumbsup:

    That they might however, some would quantify by the change on the odometer of each bike in the collective.

    11,500' in Colorado on Saturday...not much snow and all but a couple drifts (like this one) were rideable. Kind of unusual, typically the first snows are deep and light enough that no one is riding anything this high that's not packed down!

    I certainly wouldn't mind a ride on a log lady, but for now I'm still MUSStified. At some point perhaps a custom with 3 wheel sets, but not at the moment.

    The custom budget went into three bikes after sorting a frame design with Twenty2. They went tits up just before I was gonna pull the trigger. :/

    JustJ's thread on the WaltWorks has been a great read. With all the various wheel ant tire combinations he's experimented with, much information can be gleaned.

    I've read a good portion of JustJ's thread along with other postings by Walt. I've also been interested by the Otso Voytek and the Durango Hooey with an 83mm BB shell. What started my interest in the "one frame to rule them all" train of thought was a post by Bob Brown and a frame he built with a standard mtb 73mm shell with a standard crankset. He did have to do some work with the single chainring, IIRC he spaced it out 7mm, to make it work. Pretty cool, but I'm just not ready yet to replace all my bikes with one. In part because money, I won't be able to sell my bikes to break even on a custom or the Voytek or the Hooey. The biggest hurdle is probably my emotional connection to my bikes...but someday will come eventually.

    Thus, my bike "collective" exists! I keep the special one that has been places that have since been closed to bicycles. Hmmm, bicycles deserve to be constitutionally protected too! It's difficult to let go of em sometimes. My fatbike has been instrumental in my recovery from heart surgery a few years back. My cardiologist was amazed at my recovery. That recovery was made possible with the Mayor as my cardiac therapist. The mayor's involvement got me off the hook from cardiac rehab 30 days following the heart debacle. Not too shabby! Hang in there and your answer will appear in time.

    First ride on a mountain bike single track last night. Was a blast!! Reminds me 100% of my old days of dirt bike single track runs, only minutes from my house instead of a 2 1/2 hour drive! Can't believe it took me this long to get on a fat bike....

    Getting some good early-season action out at Johnson Pass, AK. Saw around 0F after we climbed up a bit from one of the lakes, but it was definitely colder on the lake. Started the ride around 5, so most likely had some negatives here and there :)

    I'm as stoked as a 12 year old about my new 18' Salsa Mukluk Carbon GX1. Yes, I even brought it into the house for its very first night with me. I stared at it leaning up against the wall until i fell asleep. I did refrain from sleeping with it though. :crazy:
